Italian Music Festival in New York - October 8 - 13th


After a successful 2009 inaugural edition in Los Angeles, Hit Week (http://www.hitweek.it//) -- the only North American festival showcasing Italy's current music scene -- adds New York City to its annual calendar.

New York audiences, no strangers to genre defying new-generation Italian artists such as Jovanotti, Vinicio Capossela and Carmen Consoli, will be treated to live concerts and DJ sets by an all-star line-up of Italian talent headlined by Ludovico Einaudi, Elisa, Negrita and Roy Paci. The intimate surroundings offered by Manhattan's top club venues will set the stage for Stateside fans to take a deeper look into these, and more to be announced, top-flight Italian acts already known on the international scene. The traditional Columbus Day Week provides an intriguing backdrop for (H)it Week’s modern musical discovery and exploration.
